TSG146: Tag it!

This week our challenge is brought to us by our new Trendsetter, Kim O'Connell! She has challenged us to make Tags!! Tags are great for gift giving, or adding to a card base to make a card…the sky’s the limit! I used a new-to-me set called “Puppy Love” and once again decided to harness my inner “Kim Teasdale.” Instead of Copics I coloured with Tim Holtz’s new “Distress Markers” on watercolor paper.

I got a quick lesson on how to use Tombows from Kim a couple of years ago and whatever stuck in my brain is how I managed to colour this in… I didn’t own any watercolor markers until now, so this is my first crack at it..

Turned out alright, EH? lol… Watercolouring is something so new to me, but with a little patience I started to get how the markers and water pen worked with each other..

I still coloured in much the same way I would with the Copics, I just had to do the blending very differently!!

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a Tag or group of Tags, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (March 12th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery.
